When the show first aired in 2010, it gained the attention of millions of viewers, and has still averaged an audience of 4.5 million viewers throughout its six-year run.

Whether it’s the spirit of competition, or an innate urge to satisfy the primal man vs. beast instinct, viewers are hooked, and Soboba Casino is reeling them in with the opportunity to meet the man behind the hook, live and in person.
On Saturday, March 26, Troy Landry will meet guests and sign autographs at Soboba Casino, where he is scheduled to give away a grand prize to one lucky patron as a conclusion to the casino’s Get Da’ Gator Drawing.
